The jellyfish featured is in reference to the dramatic increase in their numbers due to rising sea temperatures, linked to the growth of heavy industry, itself driven by global capitalism. Able to survive in the ballasts of container ships they ride the global shipping routes, spreading themselves across the world, a brainless soup seeping through a planetary infrastructure, a psychic presence in the network. Christopher Macinnes sees a parallel between the brainless, nerve-net, input-only physiology of the jellyfish and the passive semi-comatose engagement he sees many as having with info-capitalism, our emotional labour for the network transforming us from individual thinking bodies into unthinking organic residue coating an algorithmic infrastructure.
